Language Arts Activities for Children. Fourth Edition.
Norton, Donna E.; Norton, Saundra E.
This activities book illustrates how teachers can use teaching methods and strategies to build children's language arts skills as well as create a stimulating, enriched environment. The activities in the book include many opportunities for the integration of the language arts across the curriculum. Because of the growing demand for literature-based instruction, most of the activities include selections of children's literature that may be used to focus the lesson and to expand interest in and knowledge of children's literature. All activities in the book are developed in a lesson plan format and all have been tested in school environments. A new section in this edition develops literacy activities around technology and computers. Sections of the book are: Creative Language Activities; Oral Language and Cognitive Development Activities; Listening Activities; Writing Activities; Activities for the Mechanics of Language; Activities for Literature; Media Activities; Multicultural Activities; and Technology and the Language Arts.
